Entire home is yours- feel at home!
Safe parking, wi-fi, coffee, tea, milk, soap...;)

Should you stay in one bedroom while I am here, I am generally very in and out. I love to get to know my guests, welcome them, hear why they have come to Louisville, and sometimes when the spirit has moved us we have had long conversations and even gone out to eat or to yoga! I'm actually grateful to Airbnb because two of my closest girlfriends were first my guests! But in general, and most of the time, I let you do your own thing! I am always available for questions, needs even if by phone. (I will not bother you;)

Please see the main description. There is no place in Louisville I would rather live than The Highlands, for these reasons:

Walkability- beautiful walks in park, down neighborhood streets with great architecture or along fun Bardstown Road;

Food and drink- The Highlands is known for having the most number of the best, local, creative restaurants in town, in addition to microbreweries, boutique beer houses, wine bars and coffee shops.

Location of house- you have easy walking or driving access to all above but when you are at the house it's quiet and you feel very private.

Proximity to rest of city including downtown. You'd never know it at the house but you are 5 minutes from the expressway and 8-10 minutes from downtown.

The public bus "TARC" runs (fairly) regularly up and down Bardstown Road, which is about a 5-minute walk at the end of the street. I cannot vouch for it's convenience, though- this is not a big city and I can't speak to the waiting times. Cabs are easy if you call ahead and fairly cheap because "anything in Louisville is 10-15 minutes away".

Art Galleries in Louisville:
Speed Art Museum (renovated and re-opened Dec 2015)
Galleries: check out NULU district
